shark "evoline" helmet
just braved the crowds at the NEC bikeshow, the shark stand has a prototype of the new evoline helmet.
if you dont know what that is, its a new flip up where the chinbar can go all the way over, like a roof boxer. unlike the boxer, its certified (for what thats worth these days) as a full face AND an open face, the chinbar has a very positive lock on the front and it locks round the back too, designed to be aerodynamic, quiet, and not look a twat. for once i could get my huge square jaw in it and it didnt squash my nose, bonus!
has a built in sun visor, like a caberg, and seemed very well put together.
the guy said around £250, out around the end of january, which seemed a lot but quality wise it was at least as good as a shuberth, 10 times as good as a roof boxer.
just wait to see if the production helmets are as good as that prototype, shark do seem to be pretty good in general.
